Betty is the cleaner a the local courthouse. On the bus ride to work one day, she grows tired of all the liberties her fellow citizens take. She falls asleep and dreams about what she'd do if she were the judge. Among her decrees: a thoughtless smoker learns about second-hand smoke the hard way, and an obnoxious celebrity impersonator is rewarded by having his ears blasted with imitations of Tarzan and the Shadow.

The Betty Boop Cinderella cartoon is already up on this site (http://www.archive.org/details/bb_poor_cinderella). This new copy isn't perfect, but it might be more true to the Fleischer style and the Cinecolor of the 1930s.

Betty Boop withdraw in 1939. This cartoon might be her best from that year. Her house is invaded by lively crows and she finds ways to handle the problem.
